"Elevated cranial pressure, the result of head traumas and brain tumours, is a potentially deadly complication. But although time is of the essence in detecting irregular cranial pressures, conventional diagnosis relies on time-consuming, invasive surgery at increased risk for patients. A new generation of innovative scanning devices invented by Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania) researcher Arminas Ragauskas (69) solves the problem: based on the sonic Doppler wavelength effect, the ultrasound scanners provide precise and instant pressure measurements via a probe applied to the patient's eye. Besides elevated cranial pressures, the devices also detect stroke, glaucoma, and brain tumours...
Ultrasound to safely measure brain pressure
"The scanning devices invented by Arminas Ragauskas provide quick and accurate measurements of cranial presure levels, allowing doctors to initiate life-saving treatments on time, which was previously impossible", said EPO President Benoît Battistelli announcing the European Inventor Award 2016 finalists. "By utilizing the Doppler wavelength effect in an innovative way, the scanners are a prime example of a fundamental physical phenomenon at the heart of a technically advanced, patented invention."
